Top Destinations to Celebrate Graduation: Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Cancun and Miami

After the long 4-year haul of cramming, achingly typing away paper after paper, staying up with endless amount of coffee and energy drinks it’s now time to kick back and relax – or start the celebration!

Las Vegas, NV
Everyone (especially the newly legal drinkers) dreams of descending over the Las Vegas strip and having the time of their lives in the infamous Sin City. What better time to do it than ending the 4-year journey of college?

If you choose to take the adventure of Vegas, stay the beautiful 4-Star Paris Hotel. This hotel is a visually stunning re-creation of Paris in the middle of Las Vegas. It is located in the central strip and features a 50-story Eiffel tower as its centerpiece.

Looking for an amazing view of the Las Vegas skyline? The 3-Star Stratosphere Hotel Casino and Tower is the place for you. Located at the Northern end of the Strip, this gorgeous hotel towers to a height of some 1,148 feet above the neon light-filled desert scape. When making your final descent into Las Vegas, this hotel remains the most striking feature along the Las Vegas strip.

Cancun, Mexico
Long strip of clubs that will satisfy your party fever, a breathtaking beach with turquoise waters to wind down on with a bucket of beers or simply a frozen Margarita – you have arrived in Cancun. In Cancun, the 4-Star
Xbalamque Hotel offers beauty and convenience. Located in downtown Cancun just a few minutes away from shopping centers, craft shops, restaurants, clubs and, of course, the beautiful beach of Cancun, this hotel is right around the action and merely 20 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from the hotel zone.

Also, the 3-Star Star Hotel Plaza Caribe lies at the center of Cancun and offers an optimal positioning to discover the archaeological excavations of the Yucatan Peninsula and other worthwhile excursions.

Miami, FL
For many graduates, South Beach is where it’s at this summer.  Club hopping and the infamous, Wet Willie’s – which one choose from many different alcoholic frozen treats and sip outside bathing in the Miami sun. If Miami is the spot for you, stay at the beautiful
5-Star Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel.

The hotel rises above 1,000 feet of Atlantic Ocean beach, just 2 miles from shopping on Lincoln Road and 3 miles from Miami’s South Beach. Fontainebleau is a spectacular blend of Miami’s glamorous golden era and stylish modern luxury –  with 22 oceanfront acres, 11 restaurants and nightclubs including three signature name chef restaurants, 40,000-square-foot spa, and a sophisticated poolscape with private cabanas.

Also, the 3-Star Deauville Beach Resort one of Florida’s hottest spots among travelers around the world, this hotel is located directly by the beach, only some 15 minutes by car from South Beach.

Los Angeles, CA
Last but not least, we head to the west coast to catch some rays and waves. Los Angeles has much to offer from the boardwalk of Venice Beach to parties in Hollywood and tons of places to shop. The
3-Star Wilshire Grand Hotel is ideally located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles surrounded by shopping plazas, museums, theatres and fine restaurants, which would be the ideal place to stay to enjoy all of Los Angeles. This hotel is about a 25-minute drive from the beautiful Venice Beach boardwalk

If you’re willing to splurge in celebration of your graduation, check out the 4-Star Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. The hotel is located across the street from Manns Chinese Theater and the Hollywood Wax Museum in the heart of Hollywood. Atop of the hotel is the Tropicana Bar, which features a garden setting, and the nightlife scene revolves around the comfortable second-story bar. Latin bands and other musicians play nightly.

So, gather all your Graduation earnings, choose your favorite destination and celebrate the success of graduating!
